« Part 6: Sargent #409 with a Brass name plate. Part 7 of Old Sargent Planes series Part 8: A Sargent #5418 ready for Service. »

This is an ebay find. I took a chance thinking it might be a type 1. This time it paid off.

The before:

And the now:

It’s complete and all look parts are period correct.

A rare jewel, brought back by a plane restorer-extraordinaire! Great work, Don!

Great work Don. My wife would have told me off if I’d photographed the before photo on a cleann white towel. How did you get away with that?

Beautiful work, Don Yoda, and congrats on the pick-up. Your prowess with all things Sargent is most impressive as well.

that one is very nice Don. Type 1 cool.
Have you ever thought about the typing process. If a model is discovered say between type 3 and 4. then everything after #4 moves up one #.
Just a thought.

I think it becomes a 3a. Saves some confusion.

I found this old #5 in the dirty corner of a garage sale years ago…cleaned it up and use it, at least, as much as any plane in the shop…its tight & smooth and always does what it’s asked. How does one distinguish the Type ??

I never found a Blood & Gore kinda site for SArgents.

Thanks

Don, I’m working on such a site. http://www.timetestedtools.com/typeing-sargent-bench-planes.html

A #5 size would be a #414.

Yours has the folded lateral so it a type 4 or later. It looks like the cap has been replaced. It should have a Sargent logo for that vintage.
